Divergent and Big Little Lies star Shailene Woodley has signed on to the independent crime drama After Exile, where she joins the previously announced Shia La Beouf (The Peanut Butter Falcon) and Robert De Niro (The Irishman).
The film sees LaBeouf portraying Mike Delaney, an ex-con who is released from prison and returns home only to find his younger brother slipping into a life of drugs and crime. Woodley is set to portray a woman who grew up with Delaney, and attempts to rekindle their relationship following his release.
Woodley received Golden Globe and Emmy nominations last year for her role in the acclaimed HBO series Big Little Lies, and was also seen on the big screen alongside Sam Claflin in the survival drama Adrift.
Production on After Exile is set to get underway in November, with Joshua Michael Stern (Jobs, Graves) directing from a script by Anthony Thorne and Michael Tovo.
